El Senor Ciuf Ciuf - As Seen From Above [12rec.029]


Published March 6, 2006


i got an email from our dear friend stephane obadia. he told me about this guy from italy that calls himself after the sound of a steam train, ciuf ciuf, got it? steph was very excited bout his music and so are we.
just check the first song i feel like a clean blackboard: along with his mates matteo mohorovicich at sax & clarinet and daniele dalla pellegrina at trumpet, oliviero farneti creates a surprisingly catchy and slightly surrealistic pop-song that knows about dance-music, lo-fi indierock and jazz (!). bet you'll whistle this one when you leave the house. we the ants sucks you in with his beautiful warm guitar-riffing. this song didn't leave my head for weeks! it ends with a little free-jazz woodwind-intermezzo. stunning. i think i saw a dead person walking yesterday expands olivieros sound-cosmos back to the sixties- these sweet vocal-harmonies in the middle make you think of the beach boys immediately. along with cheap synth-melodies, noisy wall-of-sound guitars and the trademark-woodwinds of matteo and daniele, by the way. demons, song seven, introduces the housy bassdrum and could have fit on the last gorillaz-album without a problem. the unspeakable chant of a collapsing universe afterwards exactly sounds like this: about nine minutes of psychedelic kraut-pop build on a small repetitive synth-motive. el senor ciuf ciuf waves hello to the early flaming lips.
indeed, this description might sound a little weird. the album doesn't! although there are a lot of moods and styles to be heard, oliviero's melodies, his voice and his sound of lo-fi homerecording hold it all together.

the beautiful artwork is an adaption of a comic short story by joey weiser from the US. the CDR-edition (limited to 50 hand-numbered copies) comes with four coloured cardboard-cards printed with the story "flight". check his homepage and order all the other mini comics, they're worth it!

I really like, no I love the first song of this album "i feel like a clean blackbord".

Ah no, I love the whole album, did almost not dare to go to toilet because I wanted to listen to that music first.

What sud I say, I just made up an account at archive.org to honour you, yes you!

Go on and give me a sign if you make a new album :)

Many greetings, Melle
